About the owner: We are Anne & Brian Lawrence mid 50s . We live just outside Newcastle upon Tyne about 50 miles from Cove Cottage. We consider the cottage to be an extension of our own home, so the furnishings and equipment are of a higher standard than you usually find in a holiday home. We like to manage all the booking and cleaning ourselves, to make sure the standard of the cottage does not suffer due to a lack of attention to detail. Our aim is to make your visit as comfortable as possible and hopefully you will leave feeling you have had value for the money you have spent. We get great pleasure from the comments in our visitors book from satisfied guests.
Why the Owner Chose Berwick-upon-Tweed: Anne spent many happy childhood years on holiday near Cove Cottage, her Aunt's and Uncles had caravans on a couple of sites in the area in the 1960s, When Anne & I were 17 years old we used to come to the area in my first car, every time we drove past the houses at Waren Mill I would say to Anne ''I would love to live here' and so it was in 2005 we came across Cove Cottage by chance whilst looking for an investment for our pension income. When we walked through the door the first time we just got that special feeling this was the place for us, not just a holiday let, a special place!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage: The cottage is in the most scenic area of the Northumberland coast, you won't find a better area as a holiday base, we have so many comments from guests saying a week is not enough, many return on a regular basis each year. Not only do you have the immediate area but for miles around in all directions, beauty and history is everywhere.
